Tastes just like the expensive Boursin® cheese spread you buy at the store. Reduced-fat cream cheese works well in this recipe. Delicious spread on crackers or as a fill on celery sticks. Good shelf life in the refrigerator. This can be eaten right way, but it's best if refrigerated for at least one day before serving.

Hi, I'm the writer of the recipe. We like this spread with 2 medium-size cloves, but if you have concerns or if you're using large cloves, start with less, the cheese's flavors will intensify overnight. You always can add more garlic if it suits you. ***12.20.18 UPDATE*** Instead of crackers, spread some cheese down the middle of a piece of salami, and roll up into a cone. Nice for an appetizer tray or snack board. Read More

Update: The garlic in this recipe is overpowering by the next day... Should cut the amount by half or more... Read More

I made this to use in the recipe for Baked Cod with Boursin Cheese also on this site subbing this recipe for the Boursin Cheese. I made half of the recipe as written which was plenty to coat the top of two fish filets. In fact I had a little leftover which was great on crackers. This is a snap to put together and one that I ll definitely make again! Thanks lutzflcat! Read More

I ? this! I make some version of it every week. A pinch of this; a pinch of that, and it's whipped together in a few minutes. Way better and less expensive than the premade stuff. I use garlic powder instead of fresh cloves, also a little onion powder and white pepper. The dried herbs vary with my mood. Read More
